I got a brand new Rocketballz driver for $170 to the door, off of ebay in October. I would rather had the R11s but they were still over 3 bills and I couldn't see that at the time
I saw the Rocketballz advertised last week on TV for $199 can't remember where though had to be Dick's or Sports Authority. Prices coming down they'll be $149 by next spring

Last time I played the Brick was in 2010 and it was a goat farm... it had reportedly been purchased by new owners, so idk if it's better now or not. The layout is fine, but it was in horrible shape then...

Rivers Edge is nice, but frankly it's too hard to be fun for me. I don't mind a challenge, but damn, that place is tough.

Never played Oyster Bay that I can recall. My favorite down that way is Crow Creek and Farmstead is nice too... Thistle is nice but also hard. Sea Trail is just ok, and Sand Piper Bay is nothing special, but I kinda like it...


BL has had 3 owners in the last 5 years. The current owner is Larry Doyle. He's a NY investment baker who also owns Olde Point Golf & CC in Hampstead. The Brick has improved by leaps and bounds since he took over. It had been sitting idle and the previous owner just came in and padlocked everything one day. http://www.bricklandinggc.com/

Love Thistle; last time I played Crow Creek it was a couple days after Christmas, cold as hell with a 20 wind blowing....; Farmstead is okay. Sea Trails runs that special where you can play 3 rounds for $99, which isn't bad, but the quality of those courses has nose-dived in the past 5 years. Oyster Bay is right down the road past Sea Trails on the ICW, gorgeous and tough.

I like to stay up that way and play. Far as I'm concerned I can have as much fun there without having to drive all the way to Myrtle... and I hate driving down there.

The PGA show is in January-February when all the new toys, gear and equipment are unveiled. All the new stuff hits the stores by March, which means all the other stuff will be on sale to make room for the new debuts.

Yeah, I agree... the Brunswick County courses are superior to the Myrtle courses.
